Radiology Faculty And Hospital Facilities
Sixteen diagnostic radiologists are involved with resident education in our program.
In addition, the faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the Children’s Hospital of Alabama are involved. Faculty subspecialization includes fellowship training in interventional radiology, neuroradiology, abdominal imaging, musculoskeletal radiology and nuclear medicine. In addition, three radiation oncologists and a radiation physicist are available for consultation.
Radiology residents participate daily in radiological examinations and interpretation, and each resident will perform numerous vascular and image-guided interventional procedures during their training. During the nuclear medicine rotations, residents become familiar with PET and SPECT scintillation cameras, total body scanners, dosage calculation and administration, patient positioning, instrumentation and interpretation.
State-Of-The-Art Imaging Equipment
6 MR scanners and 9 CT scanners is present within our system.
State of the art nuclear medicine equipment is available including PET-CT at both hospitals. More than 100,000 diagnostic radiological studies are done each year at each hospital, including several hundred interventional procedures at each hospital.
